Abstract

The species of four separate phyla, Periloculina, Pseudolacazina, elongate Lacazina and compressed Lacazina are revised and illustrated. By their common, pillared endoskeleton and miliolid coiling, they represent a common, single Late Cretaceous branch of the Fabulariidae endemic in the Pyrenean faunal province. Alveolinidae are represented in this province only by two unconnected genera, Helenalveolina n. gen. and Subalveolina, the latter closely related to American groups of larger porcelaneous foraminifera. They are interpreted as separate endemic offspring of streptospiral stem miliolids. © 1989 Institut für Paläontologie, Universität Erlangen.
